Golden Bell Christmas Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I am finding this time leading up to Christmas very busy. There is so much I want to get made and I am not sure if there is going to be time.

I have made a lot of cards this year and I have lost track of them a bit. I used the Golden Bell image from Beccy's Place for a Design Team card. I always print more images than I need, this is case something goes wrong. I am often left with unused images that it seems a shame to waste. This was the case with this card.


I found the backing paper in my stash I think it came from a magazine. In the background I used the Stitched Flags die set from Creative Expressions. 


I used the pre-coloured image. I am just getting back into my colouring but it does take me a while. This is the Golden Bell image from Beccy's Place it is available HERE. 


This is the sentiment die from the Happy Snowflakes die set from John Next Door. 


This is another card for my stash. I bet it ends up being too thick for ordinary post. Enjoy the rest of the week. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:


Happy Crafting

I know what you mean about time Jackie, there's never enough at this time of year. I know I should get myself organised a bit earlier, but it never seems to happen.
You've done an awesome job on your card, I love the quilted look of the background. The colours are fabulous and coordinate beautifully with the image. Love the die cut sentiment, great idea to add a double layer. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy
